Though its name has changed over the years and 1982 marked the year men joined the student body, The W’s core mission has endured—to provide a high quality, affordable liberal arts education with a distinct emphasis on professional development and leadership experiences for women.
Another hallmark of MUW is our Long Blue Line….the W family of graduates and friends who have so generously supported our commitment to educational excellence through the years.
